One way of reaching the top is from the ridge on the south of Coomavoher, which is along the line of the wall and fence on the left of the picture. Visible on the skyline streching away from the left side is a broad saddle going from there to the summit. It's a wild ridge where the grain of the land will force you into many detours though it is a little easier on the west side. The ridge has many souvenirs from the ice such as erratics and scraped out ponds.

On the north end of the mountain as you approach along the ridge some curved sedimentary geology is very visible. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/293/comment/1938/

Picture: Rugged summit, rugged view.

The summit is flattish though very rugged with outcrops. Although not very high and certainly not well known there are views of the coast and north and south along the line of the Iveragh mountains. Knocknagantee to the NE and Coomcallee to the south.

The panorama is towards the SW and shows Coomavanniha Lough just to the left of Coomavanniha summit. On the skyline to the left is confused mass that is Coomeathcun.

Rest assured, when you visit this summit you are unlikely to meet other walkers. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/293/comment/1939/

An Enormous Blob of Rock
by CaptainVertigo 22 Apr 2014
I approached Cnoc Breasail from the south (en route from An Bhinn Lair) as part of an extended circuit of Cloonaghlin/Namona. It presents as an enormous blob of solidified rock with its fat arms cradling Lough Coomavanniha, soon to be swallowed. Getting down to the Lough requires considerable care and one would be well advised to avoid the cliffs by following the steep line of the fence. Eating just beneath Breasail was somewhat surreal. There was nobody about, nor did I see any signs that humans had ever been there apart from the fence from Bhinn Lair. The ascent from the Lough was not difficult and the views from the summit were top class. Linkback: mountainviews.ie/summit/293/comment/16028/
